The Rocky Horror Picture Show was adapted from the stage musical The Rocky Horror Show in 1975. It became a staple of midnight theater, playing across the US for decades until the pandemic ended the party. A riff on the haunted house genre (with the addition of aliens, murder, cross-dressing, resurrection, cannibalism, and sexual hijinks), the movie wasn't particularly well received at first, but it proved to be a lot of fun for college students who saw it over and over until the script was memorized. You may know the lines, but do you know what went on behind the making of The Rocky Horror Picture Show? There's always more to learn.
After 46 years, the movie is still a cultural reference and a guilty pleasure. Enjoy some backstage trivia about The Rocky Horror Picture Show at Cracked.
